Domaine Michel Lafarge

Lafarge is one of the great names in Volnay, some would say the greatest. His wines are sought out the world over, and we are always excited when our allocation arrives.

Lafarge’s home territory is Volnay, though he also has holdings in nearby Beaune and Meursault. This is an old estate that started bottling their wines in the early 1900s. Only Armand Rousseau, the DRC, and maybe two or three other growers have that kind of history.

The wines of Lafarge are magical. Despite being made in a decidedly old-school style—really no different than a generation or even two ago—they display incredible purity and not a hint of rusticity. It is the same kind of magic that Jacky Truchot was able to conjure. We only wish we could get more.

Professional Reviews

Burghound

BH 90
"Spicy, cool and layered aromas feature notes of just sliced green apple, spice and a hint of citrus confit. The racy, delicious and delineated flavors exude evident salinity on the very dry and refreshing finale. This is an excellent aligoté that could be aged for several years to good effect." -Allen Meadows

Decanter

D 91
"Made from vines more than 80 years old, this vintage was whole-cluster pressed and fermented exclusively in cask (a combination of large and small) since it was a very small harvest. The result is uncommonly rich, with an aroma that ranges from citrus and herb, to honey and spice. On the palate it is slightly fat, but retains the freshness necessary for balance."
